The Cleveland Browns on Monday took measures to keep safety Tashaun Gipson and some of their other good, young free agents.

They tendered qualifying offers to Gipson, safety Johnson Bademosi, defensive lineman Ishmaa'ily Kitchen and linebacker Craig Robertson. General Manager Ray Farmer made the announcement in a release by the club.

The club did not announce which tender they placed on each player, but sources told Northeast Ohio Media Group that Gipson and Robertson received second-rounder tenders. It means the Browns will receive a second-round pick from the new club if they don't match the offer. The Bademosi and Kitchen received lower-round tenders.

The salary for a second-round tender is $2.356 million. A first-round tender would've been $3.354 million, and the low tender for Kitchen and Bademosi is $1.542 million.

The Browns can continue to negotiate long-term deals with all of the players, but can also match any offer sheet they receive.

Gipson is a priority signing for the Browns, but they were unable to strike a long-term deal before free agency opens tomorrow.
